Jim Wehtje discovered an apparent oversight that could potentially cause a lot of headaches for photographers and creators in general). It appears the symbol Adobe’s Behance website uses to mark a specific work’s copyright as “No use is allowed without explicit permission from owner” is the exact same mark the Creative Commons uses to label a work as “No rights reserved“, which puts into the public domain. Obviously two very different licenses. Yikes! [Read more…]
A group of sorority girls went to the MLB game between the Arizona Diamond Backs and the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday, but according to one of the MLB announcers, they might not have seen a single pitch the entire game.
The reason for this is that the selfie-obsessed Alpha Chi Omega sorority girls from Arizona seemed to be overly busy taking selfies. And more selfies. And then even more selfies.
Cameramen at sporting events often turn to film the crowd, but these girls received special attention for being so focused on filming themselves.
You know how sometimes you take such an amazing photo that you have to share immediately, just to later realize that you have an ever more awesome version of it?
That’s pretty much the case here with NASA’s insane surface photo of Pluto, taken by the interplanetary space probe New Horizons.
The result is, quite literally, out of this world.
Jay P. Morgan and the Slanted Lens team whipped up this fun little tutorial on how to use a BB gun to (literally) shoot the bulbs, and shoot them with your camera as they explode. Morgan uses Miops brand triggers to help capture the bulb explode at just the right time, which he’ll talk more about in the video. He also does a walk through of his lighting setup, exposure setup, and how he made his in studio “shooting range” with safety in mind. [Read more…]
Brazillian photographer, Vitor Shietti, has been working with light painting and incorporating it into the natural surrounding. Schietti takes to both the countryside and the city to capture his images, which complement things such as bodies of water and trees in a pretty interesting way. At times the light painting resembles a dense spiderweb entombing a tree, while other times it looks like a gentle, soaking rain shower. Either way, they really encourage you to get in there for a closer look–fascinating! [Read more…]
Madelyn Milton, a doctoral student from Minneapolis, was out last year with her friends when an argument with a taxi driver over the fare led to police being called.
The young women decided to record police sergeant Tyrone Barze, and when Madelyn stood up for her right to record him she ended “lying unconscious and bleeding in the street”, according to the lawsuit.
Despite this being the fourth lawsuit against Barze, Minneapolis police union president described him as an “excellent” officer.
The police union chief’s response to the lawsuit was even more infuriating.
Here is how 500px describes the service:
As one of the first external Chromecast photography partners, 500px integration will bring our community into 20 million+ Chromecast users’ homes today, giving them the ability to display a curated collection of featured 500px photos on their high-definition TVs, and discover the photographers who took them through the attribution links.
However, there are two sides to this story.
On one hand, HD TVs are essentially just another digital screen (does anyone still actually watch “TV” on a TV?), so extending the 500px collection to TV screens is a powerful extension of the reach of the 500px community – from computer screens, to mobile devices to tablets to TVs.
On the other hand, Google is selling Chromecast hardware for $45 a pop and streaming copyrighted creative content to their users – with no monetary compensation for content creators.
To better explain the arrangement and what it means for photographers and 500px users, DIYPhotography.net presents the following exclusive interview with Nuno Silva the Director of Content and Marketplace at 500px:
I’ve found that using an adjustable sat nav holder AND an iPhone as a light source make a great combination for close up lighting or medium fill.
Many of the timelapses and hyperlapses we share pride themselves on creating amazing footage with little budget (little being a relative term of course). But what if the budget to produce a timelapse was huge? I mean, talented people + little money = awesome results. What would talented people + lots resources create?
The answer is “Imagination” by PermaGrin, a time lapse that shows how kids see the world via their magical glasses of imagination:
As children, we viewed the world through the lenses of our imaginations. The carpet became lava, the shadows formed monsters, the family minivan was a spaceship. But the older we got, the more reality set in, and soon we forgot the magic our minds could create. We invite you to step back into your childhood and take a look through the lens once again. #
The movie features imaginated scenes from Ghostbusters, Toy Story, Up, Pirates of The Caribbean’s and more, see is you can spot all the different movies
If you care to learn a bit more about how the movie was produced, there is a 17 minutes behind the scenes video after the jump.
A while back I saw the Light Blaster in a online shopping site, I liked the effect and that Inspire me to build a Light Blaster on my own.
My first order of business was to look for something that would serve as the body of the unit. I needed a material that is strong enough to carry a lens and light enough to not overwhelm a light stand. I decided to a use a small plastic food container from the dollar store as my Light Blaster body.
